My Workspace

Personal / Webworking

I’ve been ask a couple of times to share my work space, so here is a little post to show you how or better where I work and what things are important to me while working.

Since I spend a lot of time on my computer and work desk (my mum would say too much…) I try to make my work space as inspirational and comfortable as possible. So I love to have light colors and some creative things around me, like a notebook, inspirational design magazines, post cards, pictures and drawing materials (pencils, watercolors etc.).

When I was a kid we went on a family vacation to Tuscany, Italy every year. We never stayed in fancy hotel or took a flight back then. We would drive the whole way down from Germany in our old VW station wagon and stayed at a rustic farm house a friend of my parents owned.

For my sister and me this holiday was always a big adventure. We would explore the surrounding countryside with hundreds of olive trees and mysterious hide out places or play with the neighbors kids, whose parents had a huge pheasant farm next door and whose language we didn’t even understand.

Staying in this old Tuscan villa where we could run around all day and just do whatever we loved to do meant total freedom for us back then. I remember feeling like I was an adventurer or a pirate, anything, but definitely not just a little girl from a small town in the south of Germany.

Book Review: Hello Sandwich Tokyo Guide

Books / Tokyo / Travels




When we traveled to Japan last year our first stop was Tokyo. Since we were dreaming about visiting Japan for years, we were so exited and started to search for good travel recommendation or guide books. We stumbled over a recommendation for the little self-made “Tokyo Guide” by Hello Sandwich somewhere online rather accidentally. Of course we ordered the little book right away.

And we really loved it — it gave us so many ideas what to do in this amazing city away from the typical tourist to do lists.

The guide is divided into the different Tokyo neighborhoods and you can just mark an area and explore the sights and recommendations there. We also loved the tip to get a smart card for the Tokyo train and subway net. This way we didn’t have to worry about getting a ticket every time we took the metro.

Our favorite area in our (sadly only five days stay) in Tokyo was Shimokitazawa (with cute stores and lovely cafés) and of course Harajuku with its teens dressing up sooo fun and creative. We definitely have to come back and stay in Tokyo again to see more of this amazing city.
